i was out to dinner the other night

the waitress was busy cleaning tables
moving chairs around
her shoes looked old
her makeup was bad
i imagined that she had a couple of kids
at home
an old buick skylark
bad credit
and sore feet?
the restaurant wasn't very busy
i watched her for at least 45 minutes
filling bottles
wiping tables
so much life-
being broken down right in front of anyone brave enough, to
watch it happen
i couldn't take much more
it was around 8:00
i went home
having eaten too much-

i was embarrassed

so i hurried to sleep...
